Early in my creative explorations I came across an article in the National Geographic about research pointing to the fact that the mind reads balance as beauty. This experience of beauty became central to my approach and was what I aimed for. I believed that my images had to be ‘healed’ or balanced in some way, and that the unconscious would assist me in this. I discovered that if I stayed with the energy until I had the ‘aha!’ feeling, the image would become remarkably ‘beautiful’ and I considered it to be completed. And this was irrespective of whether some artistic issues remained unresolved.
